The Asics Men's GEL-Kayano 19 Running Shoe is nearly a half-ounce lighter than its predecessor, but it doesn't cut corners when it comes to fit or support. The lightweight, flexible upper keeps things cool and comfortable, while the exoskeletal heel counter enhances the fit and the Dynamic Duo Max dual-density midsole offers the structured cushioning that neutral runners and mild overpronators appreciate.

  • Biomorphic Fit upper uses stretch material in strategic areas for comfort and mobility and seamless overlays for light support
  • Discrete eyelets are independently places to allow you to fine-tune your fit and support
  • ComforDry Sockliner provides cushioning and resists the bacteria that causes odors, and encourages the movement of moisture away form your skin so your foot stays dry
  • Heel Clutching system features a lightweight external heel counter that enhances fit and stability
  • Ankle collar molds to the foot thanks to dual-layer memory foam cushioning
  • Dual-density foam in midsole provides support and stabilizes your footstrike on uneven terrain
  • Solyte midsole material is ultralight and extra durable
  • GEL cushioning absorbs impact at the rear and forefoot as the foot rolls from heel to toe
  • Stabilizer at the midfoot creates a pocket between Asic's Trusstic midsole reinforcement structure and the midsole cushioning that allows the midsole to compress on impact and improve overall cushioning efficiency
  • Midsole, sole, and cushioning are linked together in design to provide the most natural gait from heel strike to toe off
  • Outsole is reinforced with high abrasion rubber in critical areas
  • Sole uses vertical flex grooves that allow for a more flexible tread pattern
  • Reflective details make you more visible on early-morning or evening runs

Love these

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I got a pair of these on a recommendation from a buddy. I'm now on my 4th pair and I will buy a 5th, I used these in a marathon and they have just been a great shoe. I'm a big dude at 250 lbs and have thrashed these shoes pretty hard, but they are well put together and last through a lot of abuse.

Love these

Awesome shoe!

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:True to size

Thesehave a super comfortable and snug fit. I pronate too much for these. After trying them on I felt that the super soft and narrower sole will not work for me. Upset they did not work for me is why I am giving them 4 stars :( Fit is true to size.

Not a minimalist shoe, awesome anyway!

    I started using KAYANO 13 a few years ago, and I have loved these shoes. I just purchased the KAYANO 19 (GEL's) a few weeks ago and I have put about 80 miles on them already, they give excellent support for my slightly pronating stride. This shoes have been great specially on long runs at the start the season when I'm carrying extra pounds. The shoes are heavier than a lot of other shoes out there, but the extra weight is worth it if you want to protect your knees from road pounding.

    Has anyone worn these shoes hiking? I'm...

    Has anyone worn these shoes hiking? I'm looking into starting to wear running shoes when i hike instead of boots and these are what i just purchased for general athletic shoes. Good or bad idea to backpack in these?

    Best Answer

    I have not worn these specific shoes hiking, but I do wear trail shoes when hiking sometimes. There is nothing wrong persay with wearing trail shoes, the biggest potential drawback is a loss of ankle support and toe protection that would normally prevent twisted ankles and stubbed toes.

    The Asics GEL-Kayano 19 Running Shoe is a sturdy shoe with good stability, so it would give you the support you need, but it is not a trail running shoes and lacks the toe protection and beefy sole that you usually find in trail shoes. So it is borderline.

    Personally I would not recommend these specific shoes for hiking/backpacking. If you are going to wear running shoes for hiking/backpacking I would suggest finding a trail shoe that has a luggy sole, good cushion and stability underfoot, and possible a toe cap of some sort to protect your piggies.
